Personal motor vehicles are an integral part of everyday life in San Diego. They have become so ingrained in modern society that residents of this city can sometimes forget that cars and trucks are dangerous machines. One moment of distraction or inattention behind the wheel can easily lead to a life-altering traffic accident. These collisions can be especially serious when they involve pedestrians.
The Chula Vista Police Department is in the process of investigating a fatal pedestrian accident. The deceased pedestrian had been walking down E Street when he was struck by a car. The authorities are requesting the public’s assistance in piecing together the events leading up to the crash.
